Ofudesaki Part 13 is an outline of the 13th part of the Ofudesaki. This outline is based on what appears in Thoughts on a Thematic Outline of the Ofudesaki by the second Shinbashira Shozen Nakayama. Part 13 was written in 1877.

Part 13: This part explains the Salvation Service in greater detail than does Part 2. The meaning of “Tsukihi withdraws” is explained not only as the stopping of the providence within the body but also as Oyasama’s withdrawal from physical life. In anticipation of the impending advent of the important time, we strongly feel the urgency of the situation where there is no time at all to waver.
